FAMILYFest Starts Saturday the 21st!  Eight LBHA churches in five locations, along with almost 30 people from outside our association, will be working on a Science Camp, a Vacation Bible School, Music in the Park, door to door visitation and invitations, light construction, and much more!  Please be in prayer for these churches, and the volunteers coming from Alabama, Hawaii, California, and elsewhere to join with us and the California Southern Baptist Convention to reach the unchurched and lost around us, through July 26th!  May God be glorified and may lost people be saved and discipled!


Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!


SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."  

Day 1 – Luke 11.1: One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.  When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

  1. Pray that Jesus will teach all of us to pray as He did the disciples, with faith in Him that honors our heavenly Father.  Jesus desires to teach His people to pray.
  2. Pray for the Iglesia Bautista Bethel, their pastor Dr. Juan Nunez, his wife Lili and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for the Carson Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Harvey Martindill, his wife Nancy and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Artesia, for their elected and appointed officials, for their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray for those Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association churches that are plateaued or declining in spirit and/or numbers, that our Lord will transform them anew to reach the lost around them.

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.  —Mother Teresa

The process of history is not haphazard. There is a purpose in it all. And the purpose is the purpose of God. —Leon Morris

Genius is eternal patience.  --Michaelangelo

Plant a church based on who God has called you to be, not on who you think you should be.  —Vance Pitman

His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations. His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success. And His presence with us leaves us no other choice.  —John Stott

God’s part is to put forth power; our part is to put forth faith.  —Andrew A. Bonar

The measure of maturity in a Christian has always been the desire for lost souls.  —Dr. D. Martin Lloyd-Jones. 

Your greatest need is not a spouse.  Your greatest need is to be delivered from the wrath of God—and that has already been accomplished for you through the death and resurrection of Christ.  So why doubt that God will provide a much, much lesser need?  —C. J. Mahaney

Isador and Ida Straus went down together when the Titanic sank.  Ida refused to leave her husband behind when offered a place in Lifeboat Number 8.  “Where you go, I go,” she told her husband of more than 40 years. In a Bronx cemetery a tomb is dedicated to them.  The inscription fittingly reads: “Many waters cannot quench love.”

Our revenge is to live.  Every day of freedom is like an act of faith.  And if we should die trying to live, then at least we die as human beings.  —Tuvia Bielski, Polish resistance fighters—he and his brother saved hundreds of Jews who would have been killed by the Nazis.

Accepting Christ Means Rejecting All Else.

   The notion that we enter the Christian life by an act of acceptance is true, but that is not all the truth. There is much more to it than that. Christianity involves an acceptance and a repudiation, an affirmation and a denial. And this not only at the moment of conversion but continually thereafter day by day in all the battle of life till the great conflict is over and the Christian is home from the wars. To live a life wholly positive is, fortunately, impossible. Were any man able to do such a thing it could be only for a moment.

   Living positively would be like inhaling continuously without exhaling. Aside from its being impossible, it would be fatal. Exhalation is as necessary to life as inhalation. To accept Christ it is necessary that we reject whatever is contrary to Him. This is a fact often overlooked by eager evangelists bent on getting results. Like the salesman who talks up the good points of his product and conceals its disadvantages, the badly informed soul-winner stresses the positive side of things at the expense of the negative.  —A. W. Tozer.  This is what repentance means—to reject all of the flesh, the world, and the enemy.  —Richard Graham

God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.  ―A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.  —Albert Einstein

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing. —President Abraham Lincoln

There are no working hours for leaders.  —James Cardinal Gibbons

Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.  —Warren Bennis

You can do anything once you stop trying to do everything.  —Eric Barker

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.  —Winston Churchill
